Plymouth Argyle Boss Disappointed by Defeat

The Plymouth Argyle boss reckons his team will play worse and still win after a disappointing two-one defeat to Cheltenham Town.

The uninitiated will look on the Pilgrims’ defeat to the promotion chasing side as one that was expected; one that went the way of the form book – play-off chasers overcome mid-table oppotision.

But the 670 Argyle fans at the Abbey Business Stadium on this crisp autumnal night, and perhaps some of the remaining 2,388 if they are perfectly honest, will know that it was anything but.

Argyle matched their opponents with every stride. They were just as hungry, just as wanting, just as talented but somehow, could not find a way to take a share of the spoils from their high-flying hosts.

Having taken the lead through Conor Hourihane’s 20 yard drive, Argyle were pegged back almost immediately when a well worked corner routine allowed Steve Elliott to equalise.

But in the second half, Argyle dominated. They were the first to every ball and spent most of the half camped in the Cheltenham area, desperately looking for the break.

But, with just 12 minutes remaining, the home side brought out their training ground routine again and it was Kaid Mohamed who punished the Pilgrims, heading home to steal all three points.
